Want to hear something funny? Well it’s actually not that funny at all, but here goes. As I prep this post all about our simple spring living room I’m currently watching it snow outside my bedroom window. Ironic, right? And I don’t mean just a little snow. No my friends, I’m talking massive amounts of snow happening right now. Like the kind of snow that you need to go knock off the tree branches because if you don’t the whole dang tree could fall over. It’s just wrong. The whole thing is giving me a headache and making me really question my life choices right now. Sure, let’s live in Colorado they say. It’s so pretty and clean and nice. AND SNOWY. As I type this my lilac bushes are probably freezing, which means they won’t keep blooming–along with all the other flowers that were starting to come up. Oy. I’m clearly not handling it well, I know. And I apologize for the rant, but dang. I had to get it out. We can move on now. Today I have lots of simple spring decor in our living room to share with you all. Now you know how I usually share way too many photos in my room tours, so let me recommend finding a comfy spot and maybe a snack or two to get you through this one. It’s kinda long!
You might remember seeing this vintage chair in a Friday Favorites post a while back. I’ve moved it around the house to a few different spots now, but I really like it here. I just love this little chair, I wish I had 2 or 3 more just like this. And how cute are those white faux orchids in moss balls? So fun and perfect for spring!
You all saw the little TV stand makeover I shared last week in this post here. I know I’ve already talked about it, so I won’t bore you again, but I’m sooooooo happy that I finally put some time and effort into this area of our living room. For the first time EVER I can honestly say I love the way I’ve decorated the wall behind the TV. That silly spot has been my nemesis for months now. But no more, I am victorious!
You guys, can we just talk about that giant clock for a hot minute. I found it at World Market last weekend and I literally squealed like a crazy person when I saw it. Isn’t she purdy?! I’ve been searching for a big clock like this for my old door for ages now and I finally found one that I absolutely love. It’s PERFECT for the door.
Oh how I love this little reading nook. This is still hands down one of my favorite projects EVER (you can see how we did it here). I don’t know what we’d do without the extra storage space in that bench. Things may look pretty and clean in here, but inside that bench…it’s like a disaster zone. Toys, blankets, books, pillows. Goldfish crackers. You name it, it’s probably in there.
Our living room is a small space, so I try to keep things pretty simple in here. But it’s amazing how you can give any room a whole new feel with just a few minor changes. I added the new clock, the farmhouse chalkboard, my cute vintage chair and lots and lots of greenery and flowers. Plus those changes I made to the TV stand and the wall behind it–they all add up to make a pretty big difference in this room. And I’ll go out on a limb here and say this is my favorite way our living room room has looked since we moved in. Spring is just the best! Except for when a massive snow storm comes out of nowhere and ruins your lilac bushes. That’s not cool.
I’m so thankful to have you drop by and I hope it’s nice and sunny wherever you are today. I’d love to hear what you think of my spring living room–and of course let me know if you have any questions!
